Brains of the Nation
Grounded in a detailed analysis of the lives and works of Pedro Paterno, T.H. Pardo de Tavera, and Isabelo de los Reyes, this book by Resil B. Mojares is a richly textured portrait of a generation that created the self-consciousness of the Filipino nation. It explores the historical conditions that shaped the emergence of a modern Philippine intelligentsia and the unfinished, strange and wondrous itineraries diverse intellectuals took in engaging Western knowledge and dealing with the local realities of the country from, of, and for which they tried or pretended to speak.
